This is one of the only smaller footprint laptops out there from a major manufacturer that has a discrete GPU. This means that it is much more useful for playing games than many similarly priced laptops that lack that separate processor. As is noted in the video gaming performance for casual players is good enough even on some AAA titles like GTA V.
The price is reasonable too at $799 for what feels like a very solidly constructed 2-in-1 laptop that can be flipped around into a tablet mode. The case is aluminum and has a nice rugged feel to it.
The touchscreen is nice and responsive but the touch wires are sometimes visible when light reflects off of it.
My biggest gripe is with the right shift key and its location on the keyboard. It’s very easy to accidentally hit the up arrow as its been placed where the shift key should be.
That no-so-minor gripe aside this is a great choice for college students who want to play an occasional game or two on a small and lightweight laptop.
